Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s relationship has been the subject of much speculation over the years. The two were engaged in 2002, but never made it down the aisle. Now, new details have emerged about why the couple ultimately decided not to marry.
According to reports, during their lavish three-day wedding at Ben’s stunning $8million Georgia estate, the groom reportedly told guests during his wedding speech that he and Jennifer did not marry the first time because they needed to have their respective children.
At the time, Jennifer had just given birth to her first child, Emme, while Ben had two children from his previous marriage to Jennifer Garner. It appears that the couple felt that their children needed to be taken into consideration before they could make the commitment to marry.
Ben reportedly said that he and Jennifer wanted to make sure that their children were taken care of and that they were ready to be a family before they could make the commitment to marry. He also said that he and Jennifer had discussed the issue and decided that it was best to wait until they were both ready to make the commitment.
The couple eventually split in 2004, but it appears that their decision to wait until they were both ready to make the commitment to marriage was the right one. They both have gone on to have successful careers and have each found happiness in their own relationships.
